CLIMATE: SCIENTISTS PREDICT FURTHER SHIFT IN UGANDA’S RAIN PATTERN

0

The rainfall pattern over Uganda will continue shifting from region to region as temperature rises in the various regions.

This is according to climate scientists at the Consultative Group for International Agriculture Research.

The scientists forecast that there will be an uneven increase in the different weather phenomenon over different parts of the country over the next 31 years.

Heavy rains accompanied by storms and floods will be experienced in areas which traditionally knew more dry days.

The scientists based their findings on digital Climate Data of Uganda collected between 1961 and 2005.

Earlier, Dr Geoffrey Openy, the Head of BioSystems Engineering at Gulu University said he has observed a major shift in rainfall patterns over the Acholi sub-region.

The pattern has moved by an average of two months from February to April.
